Sweet Victor The Dog Survives And Thrives Despite His Abuse

A year ago, sweet Victor the Staffordshire bull terrier was brought to the RSPCA in a shocking state.

He had been fed cocaine and his ears had been cut off with a pair of pliers.  

The pup was brought to a vet for emergency treatment where his ears were stitched up and he tested positive for cocaine. Luckily he is a resilient guy and within three months, he had healed from his injuries.

The brave boy has recovered from his trauma and the RSPCA recently announced that he is ready to be adopted into his forever home.

The man behind this abuse, Christopher Matthew Griffiths from Wrexham, Wales, UK was found guilty of "causing unnecessary suffering and carrying out a prohibited procedure" on his dog Victor.

He will serve a 24-week prison sentence, with a 12 month probation and is not allowed to own dogs for 10 years.

After the sentencing, RSPCA inspector, Kia Thomas made this statement: "When I first saw Victor I was just so shocked as his ears were gaping open wounds. I had never seen anything quite like it before," she said, "it must have been so painful for him. It was just so heartbreaking. It is awful to imagine what poor Victor went through. It was totally unnecessary."

We're so happy to hear that Victor has bounced back - we hope he finds happiness with his new forever family!
